As a purchaser of insurance, it’s vital that you keep us up to date if anything changes in your business or life circumstances that may potentially affect your coverage.

In order for us to maintain strong relationships with quality insurers we work with each to provide the type of business they desire. The insurers noted above (from list of markets) with an asterisk recognize our efforts through a Contingent Commission contract. Payment of this Contingent Commission depends on a combination of growth, profitability (loss ratio), volume, retention and increased services that we provide on behalf of the Insurer. It is based on our entire portfolio of business with that insurer and not on individual policies. Contingent Commission is not guaranteed.
